FHS track teams to conduct fundraiser at DaVinci’s March 17
The Frankenmuth varsity boys’ and girls’ track and field teams will be holding a Spaghetti Dinner & Basement Sale Fundraiser on Monday, March 17, from 5-8pm.
This year, in addition to the meal, the coaches have added a silent auction, which will be held in the lower level of DaVinci’s Italian Restaurant, 524 N. Main Street, Frankenmuth.
FHS Coach Mike Snyder expects about 70 items to be on the auction block, including some former track and cross country uniforms.
There will also be another new twist, entitled “sponsor a hurdle.” For $100, a person could have his or her name or business affixed to the back side of a new hurdle. FHS is looking to replace 40 old wooden hurdles.
The meal will include all-you-care-to-eat spaghetti, salad, dinner rolls and beverage. The cost is $10 per person, with $5, plus all tips, benefiting the Eagle and Lady Eagle track and field programs. The track athletes will be the servers.
